    This is another great issue of Usagi Yojimbo Color Classics. The finale to Usagi's origin and the standalone "Kappa" story are both extremely well-written. The writing of Usagi, Gunichi and Mifune is solid throughout both chapters. The first chapter is a finale so most of the character development is done and we're into the action but they're still entertaining. The artwork by Sakai is still brilliant. He's an incredible artist and these cartoonish animals are so expressive and relatable. It's impossible not to be taken in with them and this beautiful recreation of Edo era Japan that Stan has created. Then we have the lettering. Aside from the small issue I mentioned in the main review it was solid throughout. The use of bold letters throughout each chapter helped give weight and emotion where it's needed and the sound effects add a lot to the fights in this issue. In summary, this was fantastic.
